EXCITING NEWS!!!! UPDATE 6/19/14: P.A.W.S. of Central Louisiana is officially a 501c3 with non-profit organization status!!!
Update on 501c3 for those of you who are following our progress! We recently spoke with the IRS. We received our initial letter in April but had to send in an additional fee because we are so darn good at fundraising (all you wonderful sponsors and donors) which moved us up into a higher fee range. The second letter stating that our application was received and is being reviewed was sent to us. We are waiting to be assigned an Agent so the application can be reviewed more thoroughly, and unless we need to provide additional information we should receive our determination sometime in the next 90 days!
So many good things are happening with our group and we want everyone to be part of this! If you can foster an animal please let us know. We need new fosters so that we can adopt dogs and cats from the shelter to prevent euthanization. If you can volunteer your time, even if it is only occasionally, please let us know. If you want to have a larger role in the P.A.W.S. organization please let us know your strengths and what you can help us achieve. If you cannot foster but can take a foster dog for the day and take it to PetSmart or out in public to help socialize please contact us! We have vet bills additional to what the certificates from the shelter pays for, so if you want to donate but want to be sure of where your money is going, we can give you the names of our vets and you can donate money against our vet bills!
There are so many ways to help, both big and small. But please remember that no matter how small you think it is, everything done goes a long way to helping these babies. Thank you!
Adopting a pet is easy and rewarding! If interested in adoption, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to fill out an adoption application
P.A.W.S. dog adoption fees are $50 to $100.
P.A.W.S. cat adoption fees are $25 to $75.
Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, shots, rabies vaccination, heartworm test, and worming.
